Do you remember the 80s? The 80’s is considered to be the most beautiful decade by most people when it comes to music especially on fashion trends.  I had lots of fond memories being a teenager during the 80s. Memories of Scrunched up socks, rolled up jeans, pony tails off to the side, spiked bangs, bright colored clothing, often neon and disco dancing often bring back smiles not only for me but for some who really enjoyed the 80s style and fashion. This is actually one of the reasons why many individuals throw themed 80s parties.

Being invited to a themed 80s fashion party is exciting however, you may still end up wondering what to wear. Though you may be familiar with some of the many 80s fashion trends, it is still wise to do a bit of researching before deciding on your 80s fashion wardrobe for your party. Doing a little bit of 80s fashion research and you could be more than just an average partygoer could; you could be one that stands out or is complimented for your wardrobe choice.  

If you will pay attention in familiarizing yourself with 80s fashion trends of the past, you will find that you have several different options. One of those options involves using the internet. What is nice about using the internet is that you can find just about anything that you are looking for online, including information on popular 80s fashion trends. Additionally, traditional websites may provide you with free information and details online, you may also be able to locate older versions or scans of old 80s fashion magazines online.

Look for old photo albums, there is a good chance that you may have photographs of yourself, your family, or your friends during the 80s that you may use for ideas for your wardrobe.

Another fun way that you can go about researching 80s fashion trends is by turning on your television. On television, even today, you can find a number of shows that aired in the 80s. What is nice about these shows is that they are set in the time.
